Overview

Landfalls of Paradise has remained the definitive guide for cruising in the Pacific for more than a decade. This new edition contains the most current information available on customs and immigration procedures, together with revised harbor charts and updated descriptions of more than seventy-five ports of entry and many lesser harbors and anchorages. (Midway, Bikini, Suvarov, and Henderson Atolls have been added to this edition.) The extensive treatment of island countries found in previous editions remains, with pertinent political, economic, social, and geological information updated. Expanded weather coverage, including discussions of the South Pacific Convergence Zone, the impact of E1 Nino, tropical cyclone havens, and preferred weather windows for sailing, will help guide cruisers to a safe harbor. Among the appendixes are a trilingual dictionary useful for port entry, a glossary of cruising terms, and a new section offering sound advice on the prevention and, in some cases, treatment, of critical medical conditions such as ciguatera and scromboid fish poisoning, dengue fever, and malaria.
